In an attempt to make the company leaner as it embarks in major restructuring, one of the world’s largest insurers is shedding thousands jobs from its payrolls.
After the most recent recession that affected just about every adult American, agents may have found some commonalities among their insurance leads with regards to the financial impact the down period had on customers and the coverages they were looking for.
When it comes to dealing with life insurance leads, sometimes the easiest part of the process is actually finding the leads themselves. Where things can get tricky is explaining to customers how much coverage they require based on their individual needs, which of course differ from one client to the next.
For agents whose insurance leads primarily derive from customers in the New Hampshire area, recent testimony before a joint House and Senate panel suggests that industry professionals may want to make their clients more fully informed of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act before it’s officially rolled out in 2014.
Once agents actually meet the customers they learn about through insurance leads, they often find that they’ll have lots of different questions. One of the most common ones is how much coverage will cost them. While there are a variety of different factors that go into this assessment, a new study suggests that as a general rule, they haven’t materially increased nationwide.
